Grant Writing II @ MURRAY SITE

What is a logic model? This tool captures a program in a graphic format, clarifying activities and outcomes and communicating the anticipated results to the funder. Many federal, state, and foundation grants request applicants to submit a logic model as a part of a grant application. Building on principles from Grant Writing I, you will develop a complete logic model for your program that will support both your grant writing and grant implementation efforts.

Delicate, yet hearty and palette pleasing, mushrooms add texture and flavor to a variety of cuisines and dishes. But which of the thousands of species of mushrooms is edible, and which will kill you? We’ll begin to learn this important distinction in class, where we will discuss the basics of mushroom hunting, which mushrooms in Utah and surrounding states are edible, and of course, cooking with mushrooms. Our field trip will take us to the Uinta mountains, where we will hunt for boletus edulis (porcini), chanterelle, agaricus campestris (button), and morels. Field trip transportation is by carpool. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.
